Angel leaned her head against the passenger window of Pam’s car, she gazed at Pam and admired her girlfriend as she drove. She loved her so much, it was beyond sex. Pam was her soul mate. She turned back to look out of her window, thinking if she was making the right decision.
“Are you okay sweet” Pam asked
“Yeah hun” she smiled.
Ijay almost fell out of bed when the alarm clock rang.
“Already! She half screamed. Just then her phone rang, reluctantly she picked her call even though she couldn’t recognize the number.
“Hello” there was what seemed like an endless silence.
“Hello” she said again with raised brow, this time a bit pissed at whoever that was. Another silence. She ended the call and got off the bed wondering who that might be, then it clicked, it might be her ex, and if it was really her, then good she ended the call. She rushed a shower, got dressed, looked at her wristwatch and rushed out heading to work;she was on an afternoon shift.
Few yrs back…
Angel and Pam met in college, they weren’t particularly friendly at first, infact no one talked to Pam, or wanted anything to do with her – she was an outcast. Pam on the other hand had always admired Angel’s quietness in class. Until they became roommates in there final year, crammed into a two-man- room, two-desk, one-closet. They didn’t pick each other; they were assigned their rooms by the school authority. They bonded as roommates, though Pam had flirted with the thought of crawling into the other’s bed some nights but never did.
Angel about 5’6, fleshy, curvy figure and dark eyes that captured your attention immediately, average size boobs like a 34D, fair and classy in terms of fashion had no idea Pam liked her that way. Angel felt she was just being nice and caring maybe because she didn’t really have friends and to her Pam was soft spoken, and had a listening ear, she began to wonder why people avoided her. Maybe it was her dress sense she concluded.
Pam about 5’9, slim, with a very flat tommy, lovely shape. She had dreads on her hair, she loved her tees, blazers, jeans and her palm slippers. She was used to being stared at and of course avoided. She loved the fact the only girl she admired had become not just a roommate but a good friend and she wasn’t ready to scare her off.
Ijay, a dyke of about 6’1, long legged, with modest boobs and boyish hips. light skinned, slim, always weaves her hair to the back, got a good sense of humor, a bit shy, well at first meetings though, good sense of fashion and quite expensive too, a goal-getter, who knows what she wants and gets it. She had been in and out of various relationships well that was before she relocated to her present city. She wanted something different, something more challenging, she relocated and started a new life, got new friends and ofcourse a better job.
It wasn’t till later that Angel learnt why the other girls kept their distance.
It was their 2nd semester year three, Angel wanted to celebrate her birthday and insisted on Pam being there.
“You had better watch your ass around Pam” Viv warned her.
“What?” She asked, knowing she couldn’t have heard Viv correctly.
“I said you had better watch your ass around Pam”, Viv told Angel again. “She’s a dyke – a lesbian.. Do I need to draw you a picture?”
“That can’t be”. Angel said in denial.
“She is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met, Pam is….”
“Mark my words, she is only being nice to get into your panties. Be careful with her , unless that’s what you are looking for.” Viv warned her with a snarl.
“But…, but…” Angel stuttered.
“But what?” Viv asked.
“But….nothing…!” Angel said. Now very confused, but she decided not to act on what she had just heard. She had grown to like Pam as a person and she wouldn’t allow just “rumors” to affect their relationship. She didn’t want Viv’s words to bother her, but they did. That conversation with Viv had made her think that every move or jest made by Pam had a sexual undertone. She found herself stealing glances at Pam. Seeing her in this new light captivated Angel, and her thoughts began to wander…
Ijay got into lagos a very innocent, prim and proper girl, she was single and wasn’t searching, she wanted to settle in first. Along the line,she made new friends, most were gay. It wasn’t a problem though and considering she had it all, she was liked by all. Until she met Lynda.
Ijay’s buddy, kim pleaded with ijay to stand in as Lynda’s girlfriend, since her girlfriend thought she was cheating on her with Lynda. Ijay took the offer, and stood as Lynda’s girlfriend at an outing that included Kim, her girlfriend, and Lynda so all doubts would be cleared on her part..
After that outing,Ijay and Lynda stayed in touch and kept joking about being in a relationship that was staged though.
“Any plans for the weekend?” Ijay asked Lynda over the phone
“None for now”
“Wanna come over?after all ,we are supposed to be dating””
Lynda laughed and assured her she would come spend the night…
